I was spending a nice relaxing evening watching some hockey and going through some of my stockpiled hobby supplies that I've built up over the years. I've got way too much crap....and so a good purge was in order. It was nice to see my closet slowly looking more organized and less like my nephew's "place for everything".
Gone are some taped top loaders that were going to be used for future mailings (I've only got a bazillion of them now) as well as some bent binder pages and tarnished one touches....they're all going bye-bye.
But as I was going through the one touches....I noticed something very interesting - and disturbing.
I've had some of my older one touches for at least a good decade or so (they had been used...but not in bad enough shape to throw out) and they've just been sitting on a shelf in my closet waiting for a day when I might put them back into service. After seeing this though I don't know if I'm comfortable doing so.
So I sent Ultra Pro an e-mail and am hoping for some sort of comment/response. I don't know if there is any sort of guarantee on these but I can safely say that I will be assessing my entire pc and purging all silver one touch holders.
Anyone else ever notice this? Or better yet....has anyone else experienced this (after racing to their collection to check right after reading my post)?
I would hope that Ultra Pro stands behind their product and is able to work with me to rectify this situation. I've put a lot of money into their products over the years and feel that they are the gold standard when it comes to card protection.
That said, this could be the turning point for me looking elsewhere for my supplies.
Oh......and Happy New Year!!! :)
